Half-back Matt Frawley will make his NRL debut for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs when he steps out at ANZ Stadium against the Broncos on Thursday night (8-05 pm kick off).

Frawley, who originally hails from Canberra and has been with the Bulldogs for three years, takes the place of Moses Mbye, who has been suspended for a week for a shoulder charge against Manly last Saturday.

The match against Brisbane also sees forward Aiden Tolman complete his 200th NRL match, a week after Brett Morris achieved the feat.
